9780099572992: The Railway Children (Vintage Children's Classics)

Includes a character guide, quizzes, author information, and information on steam trains and being a child in Edwardian times

"Stand firm" said Peter, "and wave like mad!"

They were not railway children to begin with. When their Father mysteriously leaves home Roberta (everyone calls her Bobbie), Phyllis, and Peter must move to a small cottage in the countryside with Mother. It is a bitter blow to leave their London home, but soon they discover the hills and valleys, the canal, and of course, the railway. But with the thrilling rush and rattle and roar of the trains comes danger too. Will the brave trio come to the rescue? And most importantly, can they solve the disappearance of their Father?

From the Back Cover:

They were not railway children to begin with... They did not guess then how they would grow to love the railway, and how soon it would become the centre of their new life, nor what wonders and changes it would bring them.

About the Author:

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) is the author of Five Children and It, The Railway Children, and The Treasure Seekers.
